In the first grade I was diagnosed with anxiety and depression. I often felt like I let that limit what I did in my childhood, and even to this day. I felt like in our society we are not allowed to show our "weaknesses" and that I needed to hide who I was and my struggles to not let people see my limits. I felt alone and a burden. I always want to make people feel like they are allowed to talk about their feelings and that we all have our own story we are dealing with. No one is ever alone. I think as a society we need to eliminate the constant strive to being perfect, and that showing emotions is a weak thing to do because, it is actually a very brave and strong thing to do. I strive to create a project that not only serves as a therapeutic experience for the individuals involved but also for the audience that views the finished images. I want to create a safe space to allow people to self disclose and be vulnerable about the limits they face daily and show them they are not alone. These limits can be but are not limited to, mental health, race, assault, chronic illness, gender, religion, sexuality, etc. We must not judge people by what we can see. I am also a photographer and feel that art can change the world with it’s impact and message.
